Backpackers Inn on the Beach

Byron Bay, Australia

The rooms were very small and very hot. Nice atmosphere in the hostel. Bathrooms were not quite up to scratch. All just a bit average.

We loved this hostel! Great atmosphere with lovely staff who couldn't do enough for you. Very knowledgeable and helpful when booking excursions. Free pick up from bus stop, good location - 10 minute walk to main street. Everything very clean and well maintained. Definitely recommend.

Base Magnetic Island

If you've stayed at Base hostels previously you know what to expect, however in comparison this hostel was worse. Couldn't lock bedroom door, bathrooms were smelly and disgusting, staff were useless when it came to enquiring about activities, etc. It is a nice beachside location and the bar has a nice atmosphere.

Thanks for leaving some feedback, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. After reading your comments we've been through to make sure all doors lock correctly, the clean team have deep cleaned the bathrooms and I apologise about the staff not helping you out more, we have just employed a new team of superstar receptionists who are all well versed in everything the island has to offer. We hope you give us a second chance sto change your opinion. Safe travels, Base crew.

We had a brilliant stay at this hostel. Great value for money - free dinner every night and free wifi a bonus! We liked it here so much that we extended our stay. It's above a bar so can get noisy (which wasn't a problem for us) but bear it in mind of you like peace and quiet at night. Would definitely return.

A lovely, intimate hostel in a great location and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this hostel. Would definitely return!

Nomads Fat Camel Hostel

Auckland, New Zealand

DISGUSTING. Didn't want to touch anything as everything was black with dirt. Felt dirtier after showering than beforehand. Not even enough room to swing a cat in there! We nicknamed our room the 'dark hole of stink' and couldn't get out of there quick enough! God knows what the 4 bed with no window would have had to offer! The only positive note to add is that it seems we escaped the bedbug epidemic unharmed!

Hi Emma, Thank you for taking the time to place feedback on your stay with us and we are devastated it did not live up to your expectations. A bed bug epidemic does sound pretty dramatic and would be a great line in a movie but I can assure you we have not experienced this and would be just as horrified if we did! Kind regards
